State Fire Marshal Looks to Put a Freeze on Winter Fires

Indiana is expected to see another week of below freezing temperatures starting Monday.

As Hoosiers prepare for another blast of frigid air, Indiana State Fire Marshal Jim Greeson is asking citizens to exercise caution when using heating equipment, such as wood stoves or space heaters, to heat their homes.

Greeson says we've already seen the tragic consequences of the improper use of heating equipment in Indiana this year.

Three children perished in a Hammond house fire as a result of a propane-fueled space heater being near combustible material.
